This talk will discuss the nature, frequency, and costs of workplace bullying in the context of an organization’s culture, ethical culture, and organizational moral development. Ways that organizations can and should deal with this increasingly common behavior will be proposed.

The event takes place on Monday, November 14, 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in GSM Room 302 and is sponsored by UNM’s Student Center for the Public Trust.

UNM Partners With Chinese Universities

Beijing Institute of Technology, Zhuhai
UNM Anderson Dean Craig White and Professor Robert Luo recently completed a trip to China. They visited the Beijing Institute of Technology, Zhuhai, the Southern China University of Technology, and Dongguan University. They were invited by the Beijing Institute of Technology, Zhuhai (BITZ) to attend the "high-table dinner" in honor of the class of freshmen entering the new collaborative program between BITZ and the Anderson School of Management. The initial freshman cohort is 72 students. These students will study for three years at BITZ before completing their BITZ degree at Anderson in their fourth year. All of the classes at BITZ will be taught in English. They will also be coming to UNM to study English language and other classes during the summers. The students will then apply to Anderson's graduate program under the usual admission requirements.

Over time, there will likely be many chances to benefit from these relationships. The Pearl Delta area is one of the most important export/import locations in China. These schools are all strategically located in this area.

Business Plan Competition Winners

L-R: Business Plan Competition Winners FormaPop and Karuna Colectiva
The University of New Mexico's Business Plan Competition strives to turn students into entrepreneurs. This year's event was notable in several respects:  not only did more sponsors contribute to the prize pool, raising the total prize amount from $75,000 to $87,000, but for the first time UNM signed a memorandum of understanding with Central New Mexico Community College, partnering with CNM to open the competition up to CNM students.

The competition runs on two tracks: technological, utilizing intellectual property developed by UNM or CNM students or from Sandia National Labs, Los Alamos National Labs, or STC.UNM; and entrepreneurial, a generalist startup competition that does not involve intellectual property. Six technological and twelve entrepreneurial teams competed for six prizes on each track.

This year's top technological prize went to FormaPop. FormaPop's team members Antonio Gutierrez, Scott McFall, and Aundre Huynh have developed an innovative baby bottle attachment that helps the mother by making feeding easier. The bottle's cap contains built-in formula storage for convenience on the go.

The top entrepreneurial prize went to Karuna Colectiva, conceived by Henry “Jake” Foreman.
Karuna Colectiva is a pop-up workshop where students work, learn, earn and apply what they learn from the Cycles of Life learning tools through market-based education.


Congratulations to all winners and participants!

IBSG’s objective is to promote the value art as a driver of cultural preservation and economic and social development.

Congratulations to students from the Anderson School of Management for earning top prizes at the Small Business Institute’s Project of the Year competition in New Orleans. 

Anderson students earned two third place honors after competing against more than 75 SBI teams from across the nation in three different project categories at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.  The awards included a student team guided by Dr. Dimitri Kapelianis and student team leader, Alex Mansfield, who took third place honors in the Graduate/Specialized category for their project developing a strategic marketing plan for Explora! Science Center and Children’s Museum in Albuquerque.  This is the third year in a row that Dr. Kapelianis’ student teams have won national awards. 

“I have found my experience collaborating with the UNM SBI to be deeply rewarding,” said Dr. Kapelianis.  “Everyone benefits.  My students acquire practical skills by working with local businesses and non-profits on important strategic challenges. Our local client organizations benefit when Anderson MBA students bring a fresh perspective and keen insight to their business plans. And the experience keeps my teaching grounded in the practical realities of marketing strategy.”
 
The second UNM award was a third place finish in the Graduate/Comprehensive category. The student team project for American Realty was guided by Adjunct Professor Holly Hitzemann and led by student team leader Jarred Panger.  Professor Hitzemann says the SBI program provides students real-world training for their future careers through this unique experiential learning opportunity.
